I KNOW - isn't it crazy? What we really wanted to do was hit the Little House site in KS on the way down and Mansfield, MO on the way back, but these are closed until summer. Not plan for a Plan B, huh? So glad you enjoyed seeing this - I was wondering if anyone was still out there! Hello? Anyone else still reading?

I hope they can perform this again so she gets another chance at some of those 3rd position pitches! We have Joshua Bell CDs - favorites around here! Love his Kreisler CD too.

Well, we will be united in prayer as members of the Confraternity! My eldest chose St. Joan of Arc and my second combine Sts. Maria Goretti and Therese of Lisieux. Come to find out - in the ambulatory of the Cathedral there is a stone from the castle wall where St. Joan was imprisoned (photo of this on smugmug)! She and her sponsor (also her French tutor) knelt there to pray afterwards. Such a special moment! Thank you for your kind words - it was quite the special day. We never quit laboring in some way over our children! Can't wait to see what you are up to with the sewing machine. All Saints costumes perhaps?
